Today, I have no words. 

I am angry, frustrated and utterly gutted at the current state of the news in Nigeria. It seems like every day we hit a new low. Insecurity challenges, banditry, kidnappings, rape etc. have now become the order of the day.

After the End SARS protests, I consciously disconnected myself from talking about political issues in Nigeria; this for me was an act of self care as it was becoming too exhausting to talk about everything going on.

Today’s post is dedicated to Iniubong Umoren, a young lady who was kidnapped, molested and found dead in a shallow grave after she went for what was later discovered to be a non-existent interview. Like a lot of young people, Ini was looking for a job; she wanted a better life for herself and now she’s been taken away from her loved ones.

Dear Ini – you didn’t deserve this and I’m hoping the perpetrators of this act are brought to justice.

I pray for comfort for Ini’s loved ones and every other person experiencing such devastating loss.

Wishing you a great week ahead
